Asters grow in most locations, gracing the scene with their color and presence late in the season when many other blossoms have passed.
The flowers commonly known as asters grow all over the world.
Asters are easy-care flowers that are loved by bees and pollinators. Since they bloom late in the season, they can be an important late food source for pollinators when food is growing scarce.
